Did you know that the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) have joined, along with a number of other agencies to initiate a state-led process of developing (and adopting) a common core of state standards? Forty-six states plus the DC, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have signed on to take part in The Common Core State Standards Initiative.
I knew this was underway, but imagine my surprise when Education Week reported that drafts had been released this week!
Check ’em out. What do you think?
